How Often to Get 2020 Land Rover Defender 90 Oil Changes

Need more info about 2020 Land Rover Defender 90 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Land Rover recommends having your 2020 Land Rover Defender 90’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Defender 90 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Land Rover recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Land Rover Defender 90. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2020 Land Rover Defender 90?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Land Rover Defender 90. Land Rover has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2020 Defender 90.

2020 Land Rover Defender 90 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover Defender 90 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Land Rover Defender 90 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Land Rover Defender 90 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover Defender 90 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
